Memorial Day Summer Kickoff: Part 1
Happy Memorial Day Weekend from ASPN!
In celebration of Memorial Day, Peter and Tyler tour the American Shoreline to learn what summer has in store. We begin with Dr. Robert Buckingham, Tyler's father, who is enjoying the holiday weekend in Hilo, Hawaii. We then zip over to Galveston Island in Texas to speak with Reuben Trevino, Director of Operations for the Galveston Island Park Board of Trustees. Reuben explains the work that his team will undertake to ready the beaches, accesses, bathrooms, and parking for one of the busiest weekends of the year. Next, its up to Astoria, Oregon to speak with Steve Fick, the owner of Fishhawk Fisheries, processing salmon, Dungeness crab, groundfish, and shrimp. We discuss the the current and future prospects of his business as the fisheries of the Northwest are impacted by Climate Change.
